Industrial Plant Explosion Attorneys

Industrial plants are inherently dangerous places. They often house combustible chemicals, and even when they are run in perfect compliance with regulations, they still pose dangers to workers and those in surrounding areas. Industrial plants often use many different types of chemical and heating processes. These processes combined with chemicals can cause serious fires. Fires at these plants can lead to massive explosions affecting everyone from first responders and firefighters to employees and residents in neighboring areas.

Safety is an expensive proposition. Industrial employers may cut the budget for safety measures to increase profits, thus leading to an unsafe working environment. Sometimes, despite extensive training, workers themselves may fail to follow safety protocols. When safety is ignored, catastrophic injury or death can result.

Equipment is also an issue that must be considered in any type of industrial plant explosion. If a warehouse, factory, shipping yard, or other industrial establishment uses old, worn-out, and out dated equipment, workers may be at risk of an equipment malfunction. Also, the manufacturer of the materials used in a particular industry may supply a faulty product or defective equipment, thus creating another potential risk.

Industrial explosions can lead to burns, broken bones, concussions, brain injuries, hearing loss, permanent disabilities, and even death.
